Gnarled tree #WW

I used Pixelmator to apply the Pointilize effect to my photo. In my opinion, it transformed the ordinary into something more special.

This is might be my favorite tree on the Blue Ridge Parkway. It’s gnarled trunk and branches are interesting. Under foggy conditions it would be so awesome to capture the twisty image of a creepy ole tree, don’t you think? I will be on the look out for such an opportunity and like I’ve told you before fog is a common occurrence on the parkway.




It’s interesting to note that the blockbuster film The Hunger Games was primarily filmed in North Carolina, a little-known fact I picked up recently when researching another well-known movie filmed in the western Appalachian mountains of The Tar Heel State. I admit I never had an interest in watching these movies until The Hunger Games: Catching Fire appeared on Netflix and half-way through I stopped so I can start with the first film (it’s not on Netflix) with DH.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fototastic day! 😉

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

I born and raised in the Appalachian mountains of southern WV. I was a child bride when I married my high school sweetheart in 1979. We moved to Knoxville, TN to begin our life. Determined to prove nay-Sayers from our community wrong, I completed my education and went on to earn an A.S. in computer programming. From 1983-1987, I worked as a computer system’s manager. That’s a glorified title for someone who trouble shoots and maintains system back-ups. After the birth of our first child in 1988, I took early retirement. What have I been doing for the last 25+ years? I am proud to say, I am a SAHM and for most of those years I home-schooled our three children from K-12. Now, the nest is empty.
